Method

This node generates a transform array from TUIO data sent from a suitable external application that supports the TUIO protocol, via a network connection.

For TUIO to function, you’ll need a supporting application such as TUIOpad. This will be used as a source for the incoming TUIO Data. You will then need to make sure the host address and port number are the same as the target machines IP address and port number.

You can then use TUIO in much the same way as a standard Transform Array.

Transform

Name Description
Position X Move its position along the x-axis in local space.
Position Y Move its position along the y-axis in local space.
Position Z Move its position along the z-axis in local space.
Rotation Heading Rotate the object about the x-axis.
Rotation Pitch Rotate the object about the y-axis.
Rotation Bank Rotate the object about the z-axis.
Scale X Scale along the x-axis.
Scale Y Scale along the y-axis.
Scale Z Scale along the z-axis.

Attributes

Name Description
Axis Which axes for the generated shapes to generate on.
TUIO Cursors Allow the TUIO node to receive Cursor data.
TUIO Objects Allow the TUIO node to receive Object data.
TUIO Blobs Allow the TUIO node to receive Blob data.
Use TUIO Rotations Use rotations from the incoming TUIO source.
Use TUIO Scales Use scales from the incoming TUIO source.
Use TUIO ID’s For Transform Indexing Use the TUIO ID’s to index each point generated. This will attempt to keep cloned shapes consistent, but can lose points.
Flip Y Axis Flip the Y axis of the incoming TUIO data.

Inputs
